Let me just tell you all that I am wicked awesome with a tape gun. I can tape up a box in a matter of seconds. I know how to pick the right size box for the stuff I am packing. I can optimize space in a cube of cardboard and I can successfully wrap fine china in a protective layer of bubble wrap while resisting the urge to pop the tiny pockets of air.
In short people, I have done a lot of packing. But now we are down to the nitty gritty. We have reached the point where we are eating off of paper plates because all of the dishes are packed away. I have boxed up all of my hobbies.
The kids are packing up their toys, getting ready for the car ride back with Granny and Paw Paw. And George the Cat is enjoying his last days of being a inside kitty.
This past weekend we got rid of A LOT of stuff in the most successful yard sale we have ever had. We sold items that haven’t sold in the last 4 yard sales! It was a wonderful feeling to be able to get rid of so many things that have been cluttering up our life. But the one thing I am going to miss is the golf cart.
If you have never had the pleasure of living in a town where everyone drives a golf cart to get around, then let me tell you it is a wonderful experience. For the last 4 years we have traveled all over the city in our golf cart visiting parks, farmers markets, restaurants, craft shows, swimming holes and even grocery stores. Nobody is sad on a golf cart. Kids don’t cry on a golf cart. The hottest summer days are never without a breeze on a golf cart. It really is a great way to spend a day and we already miss it.
That being said, we are ready to go, if for no other reason than I am sick and tired of packing. Not to mention there isn’t much left to cook or eat in the house. So, for this Tuna Tuesday I am reposting a recipe I did last summer. It is a delicious Tuna Salad Stuffed Tomato and it’s one of my favorite ways to eat tuna salad and it reminds me of home. Which is where I will be this time next week.
